LezCab, Autostraddle’s favorite NYC-based queer non-profit theater company, is planning a party, and you’re invited! Join them at their 2015-16 launch party THIS SUNDAY, May 10th from 7-9 pm at The Stonewall Inn in NYC. The event includes a DJ, photo booth, and the chance to win amazing prizes including tickets to Fun Home, The Tempest at Shakespeare in the Park/The Public Theater and a 30 day membership to Mark Fisher Fitness.
But wait, there’s more! The event is a fundraiser, so your attendance helps this incredible organization put together a new year of theater that amplifies the voices of queer women and honors our stories. They’ll also launch an IndieGoGo campaign that night to raise funds at an international level, with the hopes of creating a more robust online presence.
You can check out the event Facebook and buy tickets online. On Sunday when the IndieGoGo goes live, you can find that on LezCab’s website. Have fun!
When I first read this headline, I thought it was talking about a lesbian taxi company. For all your queer transportation needs?
This is super cool, though! I’d totally go if I lived on the right side of the country.
Me too! Lesbian alternative to Uber?!?
Thank you everyone who came to the Spring Fling tonight! If you can, please donate to our 2015-2016 season: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lezcab/x/7560603
Wait, but I’m so excited about the Snippets. Oh gosh, I’ve always wanted a queer The Music Man, or 110 in the Shade (in fact, I have a killer duet arrangement of “My White Knight” and “Simple Little Things” in my back pocket intended for two queer women)…can you tell that I’m a Golden Age princess? Or or or a queer She Loves Me (how cute would “I Don’t Know His Name” be with the dramatic irony that Amalia isn’t falling for a man after all)! And of course, the musical that has always begged to be queered (at least to me) is Into the Woods, with a female Baker and Baker’s Wife.
UGH I so hope I can be in the city for at least one of these events!
